Life Science Optics
Continued investment and commitment to develop advanced point of care diagnostic test solutions is critical to the global mission of making the world a healthier and safer place. At IDEX Health & Science, we understand the need of healthcare practitioners to provide actionable diagnostic results while maintaining the highest level of test accuracy, speed and efficiency when and where it is needed the most, near the patient.
We are committed to being the partner of choice for our medical customers and have invested in a new state-of-the-art high-volume optical filter production factory. This new facility was purposefully configured and equipped with the most advanced automated deposition, process control and metrology technology allowing IDEX Health & Science to meet the growing demand for high-volume optical filter production for point of care (POC) medical devices.
Our Semrock-brand optical filter products are ideal for diagnostic test applications which use fluorescence, Raman, transmission, and absorbance optical detection methods.
Head-to-head, Semrock’s all-dielectric, hard-coated miniaturized optical filters lead to improved device SNR* performance, meaning more, meaning more accurate quantitative results you can rely on.
Semrock SNR = 1.4 whereas Alternative SNR = 0.6
* Signal-to-noise (SNR) results modeled using SearchLight™. Similar all-dielectric, hard-coated fluorescence filter sets optimized for green fluorescent protein (GFP) were considered under the same excitation and detection conditions.
Semrock’s new production facility supports the manufacture of optical filters:
Leaders in the design and manufacture of the highest performance and long-lasting optical coatings, Semrock offers a wide range of standard and custom product solutions for point of care medical devices.
"For both custom and off-the-shelf high-performance optical filters, Semrock provides the most consistent, timely, and thoroughly-supported solutions." says Christian Misener, Ph.D. R&D Fellow | IDEXX Laboratories
